Coffee table steal fo the year!

I have been dying for a small round coffee table with a glass top so I can have something to put my glass on in the living room without taking up all the space. Mark and I went to a thrift store yesterday to buy a bag of stuffed animals for the dogs and low and behold, the cutest little 40's wood table I have seen to date! $8.98 is all it cost me, and I brought it home and set it up.

Now... I am at a loss about what to do with it. The wood has some water damage, so I am not sure if I want to refinish it completely or paint it. And if I do paint it, what color do I paint it? I have so much vanilla in this room already, but I am scared to paint it a vibrant color. Ideas?

Great find! If you paint it, consider painting it that blue that's in the prints flanking the couch; that'd be fun! We're still looking for our coffee table... the one you found on ebay for us went for over $400. Yikes!
